Postnatal sex


Aselam wealykum werahmetulah webarakatu

is there any sin if I refuse to have sex with my husband after my nifas ends(40 days): because am not feeling well(still having pain from stiches ) and also am not ready.


Wa `alaykum as-Salamu wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.

If you are experiencing pain because of stitches following the Cistercian birth, you may refuse vaginal sex; however, you should choose other methods of sexual fulfillment, including masturbation or consensual oral stimulation; although one must stay away from anal intercourse.

Your husband should empathize with your condition and show patience with you.

Support AboutIslam in 2021

Islam encourages spouses to seek sexual fulfillment as long as they do so consensually while avoiding sexual perversions and anal intercourse.

You should also seek medical help if your condition is not improving or taking too long to heal.

Almighty Allah knows best.
